Leaders Swansea City responded to their recent defeat with a 5-2 win over Aberystwyth Town in the Genero Adran Premier Championship Conference.

Early goals from Karmyn Carter and Stacey John-Davis put the Swans in the ascendancy, only for Flavia Jenkins to pull one back for the Seasiders.

Striker Carter continued her fine form to restore the two-goal advantage before the break, while Chloe Chivers also got in on the act by scoring a brace in the second period.

Hannah Pusey found the net for the hosts late on, but it proved to be a consolation as Chris Church's side secured all three points.

Cardiff Met kept the pressure on the leaders with a 2-0 win over Cardiff City at Cyncoed Campus.

Elianna Chavez netted her seventh league goal of the season to break the deadlock with a brilliant strike into the top corner.

Despite City going close to equalising in the second period, a key moment came when Laura-May Walkley was brought down by Hollie Smith and a penalty was awarded.

Lauren Hutton-Townsend stepped up for Yzzy Taylor’s side and buried the spot-kick emphatically into the bottom corner to ensure the win.

In the Plate Conference, Pontypridd Town put in an impressive performance to secure a 4-1 victory against The New Saints at Park Hall.

Anais Trinci stole the headlines for the Mighty Dragons as she netted a fantastic hat-trick, while youngster Millie Jones also got on the scoresheet for the visitors.

The win took Fern Burrage-Male's side five points clear at the top of the Plate Conference.

Elsewhere, Port Talbot recorded their first league victory since November with a 2-0 win over Barry Town United.

In a competitive first half, it was the Steelwomen who found the breakthrough, as Lauren Amor netted just before the interval.

Buoyed by the opening goal, Port Talbot came out of the blocks quickly in the second period and doubled their advantage, with Courteney Thomas scoring her fourth league goal of the campaign.

Despite the Linnets’ attempts to get back into the game, the Steelwomen held out to seal the victory and move five points clear of the bottom.
